We called her Ramona for the brief time she was in our capture, but for at least a month before we actually met her in person it was simply "Irritatus Critterus."
Spring Hen took the nightly ravages of her garden as a personal insult and set upon a plan to capture he/she/it. The stage was set with sturdy trap and tasteful bait time and time again without results (except for when we captured a rather PO'd cat). Sometime during the wee hours the mechanism did its job and captured the illusive varmint: a Procyon lotor, or for those of you who are curious about Classification:
Or for the rest of you: Raccoon.
Rejoice with us for now we can continue to grow $22.00 per pound tomatoes and $5.00 per bunch cilantro. She has now been transported far away to an exotic waterfront property that abounds with similar creatures, abundant food and refreshing water.
